Zucchini Spice Cake

Rating: Unrated
I created this recipe to use up a bumper crop of zucchini and to get my kids to eat more fruits and veggies without them knowing it. It is a dense cake reminiscent of carrot cake. I frequently add in an extra cup of stir-ins. Raisins, flake coconut, and walnuts or pecans are favorites.
